I graduated from Oakland University with a degree in Elementary Education. My core study areas were Science and Math, I am a math girl through and through! I am also currently finishing up an additional endorsement in early childhood as Rochester College.
I have previously taught both Math and Science at the middle school level. The last 2 years I have been working at Dryden Community Schools. I worked in the kindergarten for a year as a paraprofessional with a kindergartner who was visually impaired, it was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life.
Last year I was the preschool teacher in their Montessori program. I loved working at such a small school, with a close knit community and their unique lives.
I live in Dryden with my husband who is an engineer that travels more than he is home! We have 2 boys, Michael is in 6th grade and has played the piano since he was 4 years old. I may be partial but I think he is the best ever! William (Captain or Cap) is in 4th grade. Cap has played baseball since he was 4 and just made the Lapeer Young Guns. Guess I am headed into the life of a travel ball parent!
As a family we have 18 chickens, 2 indoor cats, 2 barn cats and a bunny. In my spare time I like to run, quilt and go camping with my family. My family is members at both St. Cornelius in Dryden and St. Lawrence in Utica where my husband is a member of the Knights of Columbus.
I am super excited, looking forward to and a bit nervous about this new chapter of 2nd grade in my already awesome story! I look forward to meeting all of you and the help and blessings you will be in my life.
